Re: Smart Tv Worth Buying!!

1.smart living room show off -- yes
2.if you have 5Mbps net connection--yes

3. If point 1 ,2 not valid and you are smart --No
Dont join the less smart brigade, paying 20K for features that are useless and marketed a dump tv as smart tv

+1 to kaushik. Use the extra money to buy an hd media player or assemble an htpc.

Re: Smart Tv Worth Buying!!

You have no plans to add any media player / htpc then go ahead and buy else not needed....HTPC / Media Player will do that in a better way......although i have Samsung Smart TV but i prefer browsing through my HTPC but incase of Family, my wife prefer Smart TV options ;-) cause that is less technical :-D

Re: Smart Tv Worth Buying!!

Smart TV is a complete waste. What does Smart TV enable you to do?

a) Surf the web: Everyone who aims for a flat panel TV, invariably has a laptop/desktop at home. The PC based brwoser is the right way to surf the net. With a TV, you will invariable need extra peripherals such as KB, a wifi dongle (if wifi is not built in), etc.

b) Skype: Once again, PC is a better option. Here you will need a web cam for TV.

c) YouTube: Duh! Forget it. You need at least a 4 mbps connection (as stated above). And once again, will need a KB for faster navigation to search the content.

d) Social Media: Same as (a)

e) DLNA: This in my opinion is redundant as we can as well play content off USB drives.

f) Smart Apps/Games: My take. Use a smartphone/gaming console instead.

The novelty will wear off with in a month.

Buy the TV because of its basic features and qualities, MTBF (mean time between failures), service level/guarantee, etc. and not because it has better internet features.

+1 to this... the only irony is that all good/high end TVs are coming with 3D these days so doesnt leave much of a choice..

Re: Smart Tv Worth Buying!!

integrating things to tv have never succeeded ...a standalone box i always much more powerful and flexible....
surfing net on tv rarely needed,for that a 3K android stick u can deploy ,dont put 60-80k because tv looks high end.. people go by 'better to have' thinking
what is bettter in that ?

photo browser ,gesture control - show off ,apps ?? mostly useless
3D: hahha where is the content ,1400Rs blurays ?Downloaded 40GB per movie frpom where ,do you have time to download ?
does is give better picture ? : user not sure
do they give better sound bar?:user unaware
is the remote is innovative : i dont think so

so what to buy .. ,dont just go gray market and check price theye will sale for 4k less MRP ,risk takers can get via proper import channels
I get full HD LEDs for 39K odd.. slim , 100Hz etc etc

Re: Smart Tv Worth Buying!!

+1 to kaushik first.

Samsung makes very good internet tvs. In my tv there is an app Sony Entertainment Network which got almost all popular show on sony india network..of them I like the serial love story most cause i used to watch it and now it is not on any channels.
I have a 6mbps bb connection so full hd yt clips gonna look superb but I am too lazy to do that...maybe if some awesome movie is about to release then I will see the trailer in there.
What's the point of a functionality which u won't use and pay a greater price..but all sony's tv greater than 50k have internet app built in..but there is few models from samsung and lg which have no smart app price>50k.
